David West scored a team-high 20 points vs. the Magic, hitting 8-of-15 shots with four boards, three assists and two steals in a tough win in Orlando.
This was only West's second 20-point game of the season, though his muted scoring has been compensated for by increased rebounds (7.0), assists (3.3) and steals (0.9) compared to last season. The Pacers have limped through their first 45 games with a ton of injuries to key players, yet they're just four games behind Charlotte for the No. 8 seed. Jan 25 - 9:06 PM

David West managed just eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with six rebounds and three assists in Monday's blowout loss to the Rockets.

West is returning top 70-80 value since returning to action, averaging 12.8 points with 6.8 boards, 3.3 assists and 1.6 combined steals and blocks. He probably won't handle the ball as much whenever George Hill returns, but his value shouldn't dip too much below where it is right now.
Jan 19 - 10:55 PM

David West scored 19 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

The solid fantasy lines have been consistent for Mr. West. The scoring hasn’t been there for him in his previous five games with 16.0 points per game, but he did add averages of 7.2 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.4 steals. That’s basically fifth-round value and he should be a mid-round guy the rest of the way.
Jan 17 - 9:44 PM

David West scored 13 points on 6-of-15 shooting with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in the Pacers' 98-96 loss to the Pistons on Friday.

West has been a top 75-90 play since returning from a nasty ankle injury and owners should be more or less pleased with that type of output.
Jan 16 - 11:22 PM

David West scored a season-high 28 points with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks against the 76ers on Saturday.

He couldn't even crack 11 points per game in his previous seven games and hopefully this favorable matchup will be able to get him going. West should be much better on offense, but then again he's 34 years old. He's worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:16 PM

David West has his ring finger wrapped in a splint for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

To be clear, West is fully expected to play on Saturday but it is still not known what exactly happened to his finger. We will pass along further updates as soon as we know more, but owners can feel free to plug him into all lineups.
Jan 10 - 6:43 PM

David West scored 11 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal against the Celtics on Friday.

He had a hand injury tonight and it needed some treatment, but he did return to action and seemed fine. West is in a shooting slump over his last five, making 41.5 percent from the field for averages of 10.8 points, 6.6 boards, 4.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks. His fantasy owners should stay patient.
Jan 9 - 11:35 PM

David West scored 17 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

In what was the highlight of the game, Kevin Garnett blew in West's ear, and West responded with a shove. "It was an aggressive blow at that," West said of KG. "I think Lance's was more sensual. That was an aggressive one." As far as his stats go, West has posted averages of 13.8 points, 7.4 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 steals in 30 minutes. The buy-low window is closed.

David West scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He made just 8-of-22 from the field for a usage rate of 35.1. It's a horribly inefficient game, but who can blame him when his teammates can't make shots? West still hasn't quite got it going, but he should start heating up soon.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 12:24:00 AM

David West hit 8-of-15 shots for 17 points, 10 rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

West has been fairly disappointing after missing much of the season with an ankle injury but came through tonight. He might finally be getting into game shape and could be ready to start producing for his owners, who have had a rough time waiting for him to get it together. Tonight was a step in the right direction.

David West said the Pacers' chemistry has to improve in order for the team to win games.

It seems obvious, doesn't it? "Obviously, the chemistry has to get better," West said. "Get a better feel for one another. We just got to continue to prepare and critique what we're doing and figure it out. We got to shoot the ball better. I don't think we're trusting each other on defense. (We're) relying on individual matchups to hold your own and that's not who we've been the last few years."
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 10:51:00 AM

David West scored 12 points in 33 minutes during a 95-85 loss to the Blazers, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers.

It wasn't the most exciting line, but he filled the stat sheet nicely with his dimes and defense. West started out his season with a very high usage, but it's come back in a big way while he hasn't been efficient either. He should still get better because his minutes are safe and has no competition, so try to buy low if you can.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 09:35:00 PM

David West got back on track in Friday's loss to the Raptors, scoring 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists and one block.

West is going to facilitate a lot of offense anyway, but with no George Hill around he is going to be in the middle of everything. Make sure he wasn't somehow dropped.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 01:01:00 AM

David West hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points and three rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

West has totaled just 10 points in his last two games and probably belongs on your bench until he gets it going. Especially since he doesn't do anything but score and grab a few boards.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 10:34:00 PM

David West scored eight points in a 108-92 loss to the Hawks on Monday with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.

He still hasn't hit his stride, averaging 14.2 points, 6.8 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.4 blocks in 27.4 minutes per game. West is getting a ton of shots from the field, but he isn't to the line line he usually does. He'll be better and is a buy-low option.
